Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder Review
Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder is one of the best-selling rangefinders. It has a lot of features like pin seeker technology, jolt technology, vivid display technology, and 2nd generation E.S.P. 2. The accuracy level of this device in measuring the distances of the targets is superb! The 2nd generation E.S.P. 2 technology makes this process faster. It is also tournament legal, so you can take the advantages of this great device in any golf tournament.
Although it has a lot of amazing features, I do not like this device so much! Of course, there are some reasons for this. First of all, the price of this rangefinder is a little bit higher than other laser golf rangefinders. The second reason is, I think there is no need to use the jolt feature in it. Besides, it does not work all time (based on my personal experience, and feedback from some of the customers). You can check the Bushnell Tour V3 Laser Golf Rangefinder instead, as it has a reasonable price and it also comes with pin seeker technology with jolt vibration.
Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder is an amazing device which has the pin seeker technology with jolt vibration. That means whenever the target is locked you will feel a bit of vibration. Amazing, huh?
It also has the vivid display technology (VDT) which can help you to see the reading clearly even in the heavy sunlight. It comes with a 6x magnification. It can measure up to 1300 yards (450+ yards to flags) with an accuracy of +/-1/2 yard. It also has a waterproof construction that can help you to play even in the rain.
Actually, Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder is the latest version of Bushnell Tour Z6 Golf Rangefinder. It is one of the most popular laser rangefinders on the market. The accuracy level of this rangefinder is superb! It can really help you to pick some extra points. You can use this device in tournaments also, as this is legal for tournament play. I used this device personally and that is why I can tell you how great the device is!
Features of Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder
Let me tell you why I prefer to use this device on the golf course. Here are the features of the Bushnell Tour Z Jolt Golf Rangefinder:
Golfers use golf rangefinders on the golf course to get an idea of how far the target is from them. So a rangefinder should be accurate with the measurements. That is why golfers should choose their rangefinder based on its accuracy. But there are a lot of rangefinders on the market, so, they should choose their rangefinder wisely.
Where it is a matter of accuracy, the Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder is just awesome. It is able to measure up to 1,300 yards (450+ yards to flags) with accuracy of +/-1/2 yard from 5 to 125 yards. It can magnify up to 6 times (6x) with the 21mm object lens.
It has some cool features like Pin Seeker Technology, Jolt Technology, Vivid Display Technology. Let’s know about these technologies:
1. Pin Seeker Technology
Pin Seeker is the latest technology that can give the most accurate measurement on the course. It can lock the target immediately. Many golf rangefinder can not show the correct or show confusing result because of the backgrounds. There is a lot of backgrounds exist on the golf course like green trees, water or other hazards. When other golf rangefinder fails to show the accurate distance of the targets (flags), The rangefinder with Pin Seeker Technology can easily show the accurate measurements.
2. Jolt Technology
Jolt Technology is a technology that gives a little vibrating burst to the golfer when the target is locked. That means when a target is isolated, and locked by the device, the golfer will feel a vibration.
3. Vivid Display Technology (VDT)
If you used some golf rangefinder before you may have noticed that getting the reading (measurement) under a shiny day is quite difficult. Sometimes golfers do the mistake to read the measurement clearly although the rangefinder on his hand gives him the accurate distance. Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder uses the vivid display technology. The Vivid Display Technology helps the golfer to see the reading on the display even in a bright light. So golfers don’t have to see the light condition to read the measurement anymore!
4. E.S.P 2
There is a lot of feature in the Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder. E.S.P.2 is one of a great feature. E.S.P.2 is here to give you faster yardage more accurately. It helps you to have faster yardage than ever before with more accuracy. The Bushnell Company not only have improved the acquisition speed but also this is so accurate from 5 to 125 yards.
Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder is waterproof. The battery chamber is also waterproof. So water can’t damage the battery at all. Besides, The Bushnell company has made the whole construction of this rangefinder water resistant so that water can’t go inside of the body. So be sure that water can not be a problem anymore when you are playing.
But we suggest you not to use this device if there is a heavy rainfall. Although the company is saying it is fully waterproof.
Long Lasting Battery
Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder has a long lasting battery, where the battery life of Bushnell Tour V3 Jolt Golf Rangefinder wasn’t a satisfactory thing. But the battery life is a big improvement of the Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt Golf Rangefinder. It goes minimum one year without any issue (although it also depends on your usage). Even some people I mean some buyer of this rangefinder also saying that they played around 110 rounds with the original battery! This rangefinder use 3-Volt Lithium (CR-2) non-rechargeable battery which can be easily found on the market as it is a popular one. That can cost around $6 in a two pack.
Easy to Use
The operation of this rangefinder is simple and easy. What you have to do is just take the rangefinder on hand and try to get the flag through it. That’s it. You don’t need to do anything else. The Pin Seeker Technology will instantly lock on the closest target (let’s say flag) and you will feel a physical vibration as it uses the Jolt Technology too. Cool, right? Once the target is locked just press the button and you can see the yardage reading on the display.
